Sure, take your time (/me holds off, slowly turns blue in face).
The main idea of my branch is to have all caching in PAS, so that
individual plugins do not have to concern themselves with ZCacheable.
I don't think it makes PAS more clumsy, it's just a few lines after
all, but it makes auth plugins easier to write.

look at the patch more carefully. Overall, I *thin* I would like to
keep the caching itself out of the framework, because it is completely
irrelevant for lots of plugins, and introduces complexity / overhead.
An alternate idea I had was to implement a 'CacheablePluginHelper',
which would wrap another plugin, providing caching. It might be
possible to make it generic (like the ScriptablePlugin is).
It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order, though.
